Hi. My M3 consumes a quart about every 1500 miles (I currently have 95,500 on the car). I am failry certain that this is normal as my E30 325e and numerous E21 320is have burned about the same. Perhaps it's normal piston ring/cylinder wear?

Take care.

Just wondering what everyone's M3 is consuming in oil.
My '88 w/93K has been eating about a quart every 1k miles, and there doesn't seem to be any leaks anywhere, and no smoke on startup. Is this fairly normal?
